Has anyone ever considered adding an ATNA translation feature into the
logging programs.  This feature would automatically convert any alpha
input in the serial # field into the proper numeric character.  This
would eliminate the mental translation which causes those like me who
are code challenged to request multiple fills.  It is hard enough for
some of us to copy at anything over 25 wpm, let alone to then have to
mentally convert alpha into numeric and hit the correct keys.
